How I’ve Made Over $1000 with CashCrate

by Broke Grad on August 5, 2009

Earlier this year I shared how I’ve made over $500 with CashCrate. Now I’m back to share how I’ve made over $1000 with CashCrate.

In case you’re wondering, CashCrate is a simple, easy way for broke college students to make some extra cash while putting off studying and homework. Trust me. I joined CashCrate while putting off my thesis, and it definitely succeeded in both making me some extra money and putting off my thesis.

CashCrate is one of the more popular “Get Paid To”, or GPT, sites. You make money by filling out surveys and completing trial offers. While most of the other sites you’ll find about CashCrate make it sound like the most exciting thing in the world, I refuse to lie to you. Filling out surveys and completing trial offers is boring. Even though it’s pretty easy to do, the process can be a little confusing for newcomers.

Luckily, I’ve documented some of my CashCrate experiences and shared them on my site to help you out, because everyone can use some extra cash. In my article on how to make $24 with CashCrate right now, I provide a step-by-step explanation of how I completed three trial offers and earned $24 from CashCrate, and it only took about an hour’s worth of my time.

Since you can only do each trial offer once, you’ll eventually run out offers to complete, but thanks to CashCrate’s generous referral program, you can keep making money. For each person you refer to CashCrate, you’ll receive 20% of your referrals’ earnings, and a $3.00 bonus for each referral who earns at least $10. By telling your friends about CashCrate, you can help them make some extra money too (and earn a few extra dollars for yourself in the process).

In fact, all of the money I’ve made with CashCrate this year has been through referrals and bonuses. Just take a look below.
